Hello,

I have just got one of the above cards and was wondering is there such a thing as a GOOD Ariel out there, one that seems to get a better reception than any other ? I could do with one that has both the radio and tv connecters on so that I don't need to swap it about when listening to the radio if I want to watch the telly.

Or is this a coat hanger job ?

Cheers to all

Link doesn't work!

It's the philips sbcTT320

They make about 6 and other companies such as Belkin do too.

I assume you mean an aerial.

I use a branch off my normal TV aerial with an UHF/FM splitter. Works just fine.

If this affects your TV signal then just install an aerial amplifier.

Apologies for being clever!

You will get free good advice if you have a local 'aerial shop'. They will know which transmitters to aim for at your location. If it is a poor signal area for TV or radio, or both, you will need seperate aerials pointing in different directions. It's not an exact science, you can't just stick an aerial up and put a massive amplifier on it.

Second thoughts, if you have Sky hook up to that. You'll get TV and Radio on one connection.

Thanks for the advice Graham I have Broadband cable with NTL, I suppose the best thing is to split off that,
